** Did David Chase ended the show that way to gain a [[ItWasHisSled typical audience reaction?]] Or was it an intentional "screw-you" to the fans. [[labelnote:Explanation]] As an entry in "Misaimed Fandom, it was dicussed quote-on-quote "David Chase, creator of The Sopranos has spoken out against the many viewers who would cheer Tony on, stating that he was written to be an unlikable, hypocritical character. And, you know, a murderous gangster. And then, when those same viewers began calling for Tony's death during the show's final season, he got really frustrated, giving an absolutely scathing statement that basically said that rooting for a despicable criminal for six years and then arbitrarily deciding that it's now time for "justice" is completely absurd."[[/labelnote]]

** Will Arnett appears in 2 episodes of Season 4 as (the relatively quiet and kind) FBI agent Mike Waldrup, roughly a year before ''ArrestedDevelopment'' began airing and he became known for playing bombastic, JerkAss characters.

** Gigi's death was initially laughably awkward, a stone cold killer randomly dying of a heart attack on the toilet surrounded by porno mags leaving all of his friends stuck doing their best to preserve his dignity after the fact. It became a lot less funny when Gandolfini died in the exact same manner. Tony's line comparing him to Elvis is especially heart wrenching, as Gandolfini is discussing on his own fate and making a comparison that was widely made upon his death.

* WriterCopOut: As is often the case with a story with NoEnding, many viewers view the end of the series as David Chase simply not wanting to commit to a decisive end to the series and giving us nothing instead.
